Recall of Tip Top Poultry products due to listeria risk expanded

Chickens eat from a row of feed bins at C&A Farms in Fairmont North Carolina

A variety of chicken products sold in Virginia and North Carolina have been recalled because of concerns for listeria contamination. The recalled product list is linked to the word "spreadsheet" in the news release on that page.

The initial recall was announced after "multiple samples of product produced by Tip Top Poultry" tested positive for listeria monocytogenes, according to the USDA.

Tip Top Poultry issued the recall last month and just expanded it on Tuesday.

Listeriosis can cause fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms.

The outbreak of listeria that the investigation examined was caused by consumption of infected deli meat and cheeses, according to the CDC.

The recalled items all have an establishment number of "Est". They were shipped to stores nationwide in the United States and Canada.

The frozen cooked, diced or shredded products were produced between January 21, 2019 and September 24, 2019 and were sold at retailers like ALDI and Food Lion.

There have been no confirmed reports of any illnesses related to the recalled products. The bacteria can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that affects mainly older adults, people with weakened immune systems, pregnant women and newborns. In some cases, though, people outside these groups can be affected. The infection is treated with antibiotics.

As a reminder, you are urged not to consume these produces.

Consumers who have purchased these products should throw away the food or return it to where they bought it. When available, a retail distribution list (s), if applicable, will be posted on the FSIS website.
